Last night Marvel Studios debuted with the first trailer for WandaVision (a new TV show dedicated to the love story of Wanda and Vision), ahead of the arrival of the TV series (which could be the Marvel’s 1st major TV series) on Disney+ later this year.
“WandaVision” trailer breakdown
If I tell you personally this TV show is going to be the most funniest and weird TV show of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). As we all Marvel fans know WandaVision is set after the events of 2019’s Avenger’s: Endgame. Vision (Paul Bettany) technically died during the events of Avengers: Infinity War at the hands of Thanos, and it’s still unclear what exactly has brought him back to life.
And now in the trailer, we saw Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany) as a regular married couple with a black-and-white recreation of a 1950s sitcom, before Wanda (aka Scarlet Witch) soon realizes something is off and they break out of their black and white world into a more colorful and bombastic montage with having twin children.
Warning: Spoilers Ahead
But at the 46th sec of the trailer Vision somehow escapes from whatever simulation of the mirror universe they’re being held in and breaks into the real world, where he meets Kathryn Hahn, who appears to be dressed as a witch. Which gives Vision a hint that all is not as it seems and exchanges the following words with Hahn:
- Hahn: Am I dead?
- Bettany: No! Why would you think that?
- Hahn: Because you are.
Now if you’re scratching your head and trying to figure out which role Kathryn Hahn is playing here. Well, she is the Marvel comics witch, Agatha Harkness. She is officially credited as playing the “nosy neighbor,” but that seems to me a pretty clear misdirection from Disney. And she also knows Vision is dead suggests she’s more than just some local rando. But still, we can’t say anything more because what else that reveals about the show’s plot remains to be seen.
“WandaVision” TV series Release date
However, the trailer doesn’t directly mention an official release date for the show and simply ends with the words “coming soon”, but as Disney previously announced that WandaVision would be coming to Disney Plus in December. But one thing is confirmed that WandaVision looks set to end the drought of anything new from Marvel in 2020. Which we all are seeing due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
On a related note, as all Marvel community believes, there is a heavy possibility that the events of WandaVision will lead directly into the upcoming Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness which will star Scarlet Witch in a co-starring role.
